Search Engine | The Most Important Online Money Making Tool

The most important tool for making money online is search engines. Search engines are what gets you your traffic and how you find everything you need.

Knowing how to use a search engine properly is one of the most important things to learn online.

Most people just search for the words they are looking for. However, search engines can do more than search results and using punctuation such as " " can more specifically target search engine results.

If you search for: online money for teens, half of the top search results will not even be exactly online money for teens. Now if you search for "online money for teens" the results that come up will contain the phrase online money for teens somewhere in the page. So if you are looking for something specific put quotation marks around the phrase you are searching for.

Now you can also use search engines as a tool for your website. If you search for: link:http://onlinemoneyforteens.blogspot.com you will find the backlinks to this site. Searching for: site:http://onlinemoneyforteens.blogspot.com will show you how many of my pages are indexed.

The best search engine for finding backlinks is Yahoo. Search link:yoursite.com to find the backlinks to your site.

Search engines can also be used to generate backlinks and traffic. Search "your keyword" powered by wordpress "leave a comment". Replace your keyword with the keyword you want backlinks from. So if you have a make money online site you would search: "make money online" powered by Wordpress "leave a comment".

The search results will show you blogs for your keyword that let you leave a comment. Thus getting a backlink. Now another important tool is seoquake.com. They have an add-on for firefox and IE that shows you the page rank of the sites the show up in your search engine results.

After installing this tool you can search and find high PR blogs that you can leave a comment on.

You can also find forums on which to post.

Search for one of these:

viewtopic (this will pick up forum posts from phpBB)
showthread (this will pick up forum posts from vBulletin)
index.php showtopic ipb (this will pick up IPB forum posts)
index.php topic smf (this will pick up SMF forum posts)

This will show you forums that you can post on. Then you can put a link to your blog or website on this forum and get more free backlinks.

Article Marketing

In order to be successful with marketing you need as much traffic as possible. Article Marketing can do this for you. It is easier to get an article on the first page of Google than your whole website. The website you submit your article to has already done the work of getting back links allowing your article to appear high in search results.

Article marketing is a simple method that is profitable for many marketers. It does, however, take time,

Start by picking an offer on Max Bounty or Never Blue Ads. Then use a keyword research tool to find other keywords that are commonly searched for. Write 15 or 20 articles for each keyword. Put the keyword you are focusing on in the title and use it as much as possibly in the body, while still making the article flow and sound natural. So if you are writing articles for a making money online offer. Write an article for: make money online, teens make money online, make money online sites, money making opportunities, online money making etc. This way you will appear in the search engine for every keyword relating to your offer.

The best sites to submit your articles to are EzineArticles and Associated Content. They consistently have articles on the first page of the SERPs.

Keep writing more articles and submitting them. Then all you have to do is wait. You will have articles that appear for most of the major keywords relating to your article. You should get hundreds of views a day for your affiliate link.

Once you are getting a steady stream of income from one offer, you can pick another offer and repeat the process. Write more and more articles. The more articles you write the more money you will make.

Getting Large Amounts of Traffic Fast | InsanityClix Update

The site insanityclix.mysurfsite.com no longer seems to be around. However, after i little digging i found they have changed their name to DJ-Clix.info. But this site is not the same as it was. The site basically used to be a free advertising site. You earned points through browsing sites, which you could use to promote your own site. This site still allows you to advertise, but it has become a PTC site.

InsanityClix old idea of offering free advertising struck me as a great idea. Most of the traffic you get will be not targeted. There are two uses for the sort of traffic you get from InsanityClix.

The first is driving as much traffic to a site as possible. If you need for some reason to get insane amounts of traffic and you don't really care who it is, just as long as you get views, then this is a great method.

Also you can use these kind of sites for exposure. If no one knows about your site yet you can use a site like InsanityClix to get people to know about your site. Users may like your site when they see it and become a regular visitor. Teens who have just started a blog can use this kind of site to get their blog out there. While at the same time doing long lasting things like link building.

So because i have used InsanityClix for several things i dug around to find another site like it and came up with Smiley Traffic. It looks even better than InsanityClix did. They have 35,000 members and you can even earn money from viewing other peoples websites as well as promoting your own.

So check out Smiley Traffic

Blogging Success | 7 Tips on how to Become a Great Blogger

Your niche is a topic you love

The first step to creating a blog is figuring out what you are going to write about. If you don't pick a niche you love or at least enjoy, it will be hard for you to do any of the other steps. Why? Because you have to be committed to your site and want it to succeed. Plus it is much easier to create content about something you like because you will have knowledge about it.

Your posts are well written

Visitors to your blog will be most likely looking for information. You want your posts to convey their message in as clear a way as possible. If you have silly spelling and grammatical mistakes it makes your blog look not only unprofessional but makes the article very hard to read. People are much more likely to come back again if they can understand what your post is trying to say.

You are posting regularly and frequently

Posting everyday is a very hard thing to do. Some blogs I read do achieve this. I, unfortunately, do not. But if you can post everyday that is great for getting readers who visit your blog everyday. It becomes a habit for them to visit your blog. However if you post 3 days in a row and then take a week off and then post 5 more days people will never know when you have new content. They will get tired of coming every day for a week and there being nothing. So they will stop coming and may forget about your site. So even if you cant post everyday. Try to post on a regular basis maybe every other day or once every 3 days.

Your blog has something the other blogs in the same niche doesn't

Think about the top bloggers: Shoemoney, John Chow and even Carl Ocab. What do they have that makes them great bloggers? Each of the A-List bloggers have something that sets them apart from the people in their niche. Shoemoney with his $180,000 Adsense check, John Chow with his $40,000 a month earnings and Carl Ocab with the fact that he is 15. Now each of them has had to work just as hard as you or me to be successful. However, they have a little punch that sets them apart from the crowd. Even if you don't have something like that. Do something so your blog will stick out in peoples minds. Get a cool layout for your blog or do some quirky little thing in each post that may become your trademark. DO something to set you apart.

Your monetization is effective but not glaring

Now i assume you want to make money off blogging. In order to do that you need to monetize your site. One of the best things you can do is sell advertising space on your side bar. You can even just sell links. This takes up very little room and can make you a very good income. Carl Ocab sells a link space on his site for $55 each. He has 7 featured sites right now. That is $385 he is making off the very little bit of space. However, if you go with affiliate ads or Adsense you want to place the ads so that you make money off them. But also so that ads aren't the only thing people see. You know how annoying it is when you visit a site and ads are popping up left and right everything you click on leads to more ads. Be clever about where you place your ads.

Your content is unique

There is nothing worse than a blog that only has copied content. Now I am not talking about guest posts or anything like that. But people who create an entire blog off copied and pasted work. You will have a very hard time getting a consistent volume of traffic and making any money if you don't come up with unique content.

You work consistently at increasing the traffic to your blog

In order to be successful you have to have traffic. You could have the best content in the whole world but if no one sees it, you will make nothing. Everyday work at trading links with people and submitting articles to sites like ezinearticles.com and articledashboard.com. Always work at getting more and more traffic. Don't think that just because you have great posts people are going to flock to your site. Sure, if you have great posts people will take notice and you will get some natural traffic. However, you need to work at getting your stuff out there. Let others know about your site.
